I've been eying a local magazine, which to say the least, the photographers they use aren't all that great. I'd say 90% of my work is better then theirs is. And that's the truth. I've been building a portfolio leaning towards the norm that the magazine goes for. Same style of clothing, same type of lighting...everything to please their little eyes. Now I've talked to other photographers in the area that have published work, and all they said is that the Magazine staff called them. I don't want to wait around and be found. I want to get my foot in the door because my portfolio is ready. So besides the obvious "email the editor and cross your fingers" option. What else is there to do? IN OTHER WORDS....IS THERE ANY OTHER WAYS OF GETTING THEM TO ACCEPT MY WORK FOR A SHOOT BESIDES JUST EMAILING THEM? Probably not. I'm just going to email the editor. If they want it, then they want it.
